Join us for a talk with photographer Alan Dimmick in conversation with Ben Harman, Director of Stills: Centre for Photography.

Alan Dimmick was the Art Collection’s Photographer in Residence over the course of the University’s 50th anniversary year in 2017. His remit was to capture a ‘Portrait of the Campus’, exploring the unique natural, built and human environment of the University. Alan and Ben will talk about the photographs he took in this series and his archives as a whole, including the digitisation process.

Whilst the University archives and Art Collection hold a collection of fine photographs from the early days of the University in the 1960s and ‘70s, relatively little had been done to document and explore the changing physical and human landscape of the campus in recent decades. Alan’s residency contributed to redressing this balance.

This exhibition showcases a selection of the photographs taken during Alan’s residency. The full collection has been deposited in the University archive; thus creating a rich artistic, contemporary record of the rhythm of life on campus and bringing up to date the historic photographic material already held in our collections.
